“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4: 10-11)

As every person is gifted with the seed of vocation in his/her life, it bears fruit eventually in the service of God and his children. As Carmelites, we realize our vocation in the service of the Church by living the life of prayer and apostolate particularly as priests. The journey to priesthood involves a life of dedication and maturation and recognising this, the Church has instituted the sacred ministries of Lector and Acolyte as necessary steps towards diaconate and priesthood.

February 8th 2022 was the chosen day as the brothers from the first year of Theology were officially instituted as Lectors and the brothers from the second year of Theology as Acolytes. Rev Fr George Santhumayor, Provincial Superior who is currently doing his pastoral visitation at St. Joseph’s Monastery conferred these ministries to the brothers during the Holy Eucharist at 7 pm. Fr Lancy Lewis, the formator took the privilege in initiating the brothers towards the conferral of the ministries. Fr Rudolph Pinto preached a homily highlighting the importance and role of these ministries. The mass thus concluded at 8: 10 pm and fathers from the community joined the celebration.

We congratulate the Brothers and wish them all the best in their ministries of Lector and Acolyte.
